I am in some one's imagination, some body else wander about me,
Standing in front of mirror is my reflection, counterpart inside the mirror is not mine
One claim authority on me, Other pray for me
Practically achieve by one, Imaginatively pleaded by another
If by chance come again, Don't ask any thing Don't even see attentively
Who come to know between the journey, this way is not correct
Thee didn't aware of your enemies, I was unaware about my friends,
Your story was pleasantly different, My reality is unexpectedly different
Life is revolving between whom to trust, whom to be aware of
Myself is in arms of one who unrecognise me, I am recognise by some one else
